EY Pension Plan

It’s never too early to start planning for your retirement, and our defined contribution pension plan, administered by Desjardins, is designed to help you get there. Both you and the firm contribute a percentage of your salary toward the plan, and you select the funds that match your individual savings goals.

Full-time and Part-time employees at the Senior Manager/Associate Director level and below are eligible to join the plan effective the first of the month following their hire date. Please note that the firm contribution will be based on your EY Canada full time service only. For more information, visit the HR Connection.

Group RRSP

All employees are eligible to join our Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP) with Desjardins Financial immediately upon hire. Monthly payroll deductions make saving convenient and effortless, and you’ll get immediate tax savings through our group plan. Visit the HR Connection to learn more about the advantages of our group RRSP and how to become a member.


Tax-Free Savings Accounts (TFSA) offer many unique benefits to help you maximize your savings potential for any objectives, including retirement. You have the ability to contribute by online bank payment, prepaid authorization debit, lump sum deposit or transfer from another account. It is optional to join and is available to all staff, including spouses.

Although TFSA contributions are not tax deductible, your investment earnings and withdrawals are tax-free. Visit the HR Connection to learn more about our TFSA administered by Desjardins.
